RE: poor results [Please Advise]
Post a copy of your Sleep Study. I'll bet that you were not wearing a cervical or anti-snoring collar or wedge for the study.

The Medical community does not recognize chin tucking as a problem. To them the only be solution is more pressure or surgery to reduce the impact of what they don't have any remedy for.

Based on your charts a bi-level machine will be a better choice for you. It will allow higher pressures and , more importantly, higher pressure support which is what we are using EPR for.

You need something to stop your chin from tucking. Your medical team just offered surgery as an alternative to the collar.

Personally here I have more confidence in the collar working.

Get a collar and the BiLevel, specifically the ResMed AirCurve 10 VAuto and the collar.

RE: poor results [Please Advise]
Just read this , thank you.  I have the study but not in electronic format.  I will inquire about that.

Here is most recent home data,   Seems similar to history.  I really can't understand why they said this (CPAP) was ineffective in the lab. While these data are sub optimal, they don't seem completely bad relative to my untreated studies.

Trying to post ,but screenshot is too large.  Is there different procedures to download a attachable file from a Mac?

Resvour gasket
Trying to ask a new question.  Traveling and forgot the gasket for humidifier chamber.
Can I run it anyway, or will be damage, or massive leaks.

Should I just turn it off for these 2 days?

And help , I know it late, appreciated.

It will leak like mad, you may be able to make some type of gasket with tissue to limit the leaks, in the morning find a local dme and go and buy a new humidifier tank
